The Secret Origins of the Torah

Who wrote the Torah?

“God,” says one person.

“A highly prolific unicorn,” says another. 

“Well, actually,” says 19th-century German scholar Julius Wellhausen, appearing out of nowhere, “it was composed by four different sets of authors and later edited and compiled by a series of redactors.”

“Who asked you?” You might be thinking.

No one.

No one asked Julius Wellhausen who wrote the Torah. But if you are seeking an answer to that age-old question, look no further. We have not one, not two, not three, but FOUR sources for the price of one: Jahwist, Elohist, Deuteronomist, and Priestly. That’s JEPD, for short. Now memorize that golden nugget of knowledge and be sure to dust it off and show it off at your next Hanukkah party. The rest is commentary.

The Game

One is good; four is better. In this fast-paced, multi-dreidel variant of the classic dreidel game inspired by the Documentary Hypothesis, compete with friends and family to turn up J, E, P, and D, once theorized to be the four components of the Bible. Instructions and four dreidels included.
